Created by Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen, a lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Giving 2.0 Project U is an online platform and place to find academic resources on philanthropy as an an institution and a field of study. Recently, on June 19, 2013, Paul Best called the innovation a "treasure trove" in an article for the Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR).
The project is based in part by Arrillaga-Andreessen's New York Times best-selling book, which is called Giving 2.0, and explores philanthropy as a daily and technologically driven idea. One of the main arguments is bringing it to be proactive and not reactive.
